Steve was a great guy he would give you the shirt off his back if he could or he would charm you into a smile. RIP Hug Valerie and condolences
I used to sit by him and it was during the summer months when his kids were at home. I would hear Steve call them just to check and make sure they were okay. I remember he would say to them “I love you and I will see you when I get home”. The last time I saw him, I had asked about his wife Valerie. He replied ‘She is doing great and thank you for asking” ..with a smile 🙂
Take care Steve…..
